  • Summary: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian takes players throughout Narnia and includes a level, which is unique from both the novel and the film.

The level, which is set between the events of "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" and Prince Caspian, takes place at the castle of Cair Paravel and tells the story of how Narnia fell to the Telmarine hordes. In Prince Caspian, Cair Paravel is seen only as abandoned ruins the Pevensies discover hundreds of years later. The action/adventure game offers gameplay for one or two players on the same system and drop-in/drop-out features, allowing either player to join the game and leave. With combat, exploration and puzzle solving that extends beyond the film, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is the ideal complement to the movie-going experience. The game features more than 20 playable characters including the ability to play as Prince Caspian. [Disney Interactive] Expand

  1. It's easy to pick up, good fun to play and features some impressive battle scenes which - storyline aside - must be the biggest draw of the movie.
  2. But what I will say is that if you're a gamer who has had a bad experience with, or you just don't enjoy the simplicity of movie based titles, and are questioning on whether this is any different to other run of the mills, then keep looking, this game won't change your mind.
  3. The swordplay is simple, and dreadfully dull. [July 2008, p.86]
  4. The main problem is the lack of depth. The only good thing is the large-scale battles with little slowdown. The camera also insists on showing the most useless positions.
  5. Prince Caspian is sure fun for any fan or gamer under the age of 13 as it requires no central thinking to complete, but older gamers will find this game’s bland combat too dull to even consider a try.
  6. With very little progress since the last Narnia, even huge fans will want a price cut. [Sept 2008, p.83]
  7. 16
    The only reason that Prince Caspian doesn't utterly fail is that it does feature the occasionally interesting puzzle. However, figuring out a clever, well-thought-out solution only made the otherwise forced and repetitive nature of the rest of the game seem that much worse by comparison.
